THE ULTIMATE ONLINE CONTENT COMBO...

There are two new tools that content creators need to know about.



Why do they need to know about them? Because they are tools that people in media creation (Graphic Artists and Video Editors) are using every day in their own Industry Standard format. As a Graphic Artist will be familiar with Photoshop and a Video Editor will be familiar with Final Cut Pro or something like Premiere, these tools are making their way to the web. Although they may not be the exact tools, the functionality… Continue

Cool Web 2.0 Tool - Sumo Paint

Image editors are rampant in the Web 2.0 world. While most of them are free, so many seem geared to really basic editing: crop, resize, and get-rid-of-red-eye. So, it's a thrill to run across a full-featured, robust online program that is simple enough for young students and sophisticated enough for graphics geeks. My benchmark for a superior graphics program is whether it supports layers. Layers are the key to subtle and complex graphic design imagery.… Continue
